3/28/2016 - COMMUNITY GARDEN PLOTS AVAILABLE AT FREEDOM PARK

Did you know that for the past 15 years, Medford Township has offered garden plots at Freedom Park for use by local residents?

The plots, which are approximately 25’ x 25’, are located in the Park just behind the houses that front Union Street, across from the Public Safely Building. Each plot is tilled, staked out and numbered and a water source is provided. The provision of seeds, plantings, fertilizers, rodent control devices and perimeter fencing is the responsibility of the gardener. The plots will be ready for planting in early April.

A number of plots are still available through the Manager's Office. The administrative fee for participation is $30 for a full plot, $15 for half a plot, and $8 for a 1/4 plot. Several raised garden beds for senior citizens and those with physical limitations are available for $5.

If you would be interested in reserving a plot so that you can enjoy fresh vegetables and flowers that you have grown this summer, or if you would like additional information, please call 609-654-2608 x334 or email bportocalis@medfordtownship.com. The application form can be found here on our website:  http://www.medfordtownship.com/content/275/default.aspx
